"You did a great job." he said and handed the man a check. "Also, in order to thank you, here's an extra $80 to take the missus out to dinner and a movie." Later that night, the doorbell rang and it was the painter. Thinking the man had forgotten something he asked, "What's the matter, did you forget something?" "Nope." replied the painter. "I'm just here to take your missus out to dinner and a movie like you asked." ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ >From Fran: It was our second anniversary, and my husband sent me flowers at the office.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Christine Maier, 31, Okeechobee, Florida Florida woman arrested after throwing syringes into backseat with child during traffic stop Police officers in Florida said they found three hypodermic needles within arms reach of a toddler Tuesday afternoon during a traffic stop. When a woman in the vehicle was asked how this could happen, she said she panicked when she saw the patrol cars emergency lights and threw the needles in the backseat, according to a Boca Raton police report. Christine Maier, 31, of Okeechobee, told the officer it was a "panicked, stupid, mistake," police said. She remained in the Palm Beach County Jail early Thursday on $3,000 bail on charges of child neglect and possession of drug equipment. On Tuesday afternoon, police noticed a Jeep parked in a handicapped parking spot at the Marathon gas station on Glades Road just east of Town Center at Boca Raton. After a while, another vehicle parked next to it, and a woman, later identified as Maier, walked out of the passenger side of the Jeep. Maier met with a man who was inside the other car, and he handed her a plastic baggie, according to the report. After the two left, the Boca Raton officer noticed the Jeep did not make a full stop at a stop sign and a brake light was out, so the officer pulled the vehicle over. The officer noted he saw Maier make movements with her head and hands as he pulled the Jeep over. The officer wrote when he walked up to the car, he noticed a toddler whose face had a fresh cut on it in the backseat without a car seat. The relationship between the woman and the child is redacted from the report. After the officer took the information from the man driving the Jeep, he said he saw Maier make what appeared to be a "drug transaction" at the gas station and asked if he could search the vehicle. After the man agreed, the officer found three hypodermic needles within armís reach of the toddler. A sunglasses case in the front passenger side of the car where Maier was sitting contained two more needles and "a white crystal-like residue." The officer noted one of the needles "had a metal screw in place of a plastic plunger." The officer read the man and Maier their rights. Then the man began yelling at Maier after he saw the needles. Maier told officers she was just getting them for a friend so "he could use them to inject methamphetamines." When asked about the cut on the toddlerís nose, she said the child had fallen the day before. The driver told officers he had no idea about the needles and the only reason he drove Maier from Okeechobee to Boca Raton was because he had just gotten out of jail, and "itís been a while since Iíve had a girl.Ē The driver does not appear to have been arrested, according to jail records. The child is in the care of the Florida Department of Children and Families, according to the report. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Patti Re: Laptop keyboard lettering Dear Webby The white lettering on my laptop keyboard is coming off. Is there a way to replace it???? Patti /i> Dear Patti You can try Lettraset and then seal it with a drop of marine spar varnish or clear nail polish. Lettraset is getting hard to find, but I have seen clones of it at the Dollar Store. You could even cut the letters out from a magazine or thin ad flyer, and glue them on with regular white glue. Don't use Crazy Glue. It will stick before you can line up the letter correctly. When the glue is good and dry, you can seal the letter with a drop of clear nail polish. Have FUN! DearWebby
Alex sets up his friend Bob to go on a blind date with his cousin. Bob is a little worried about going out with someone he's never seen before. "What do I do if she's ugly?" says Bob, "I'll be with her all night." "Don't worry," Alex says, "just go up to her door and meet her first. If you like what you see, then everything goes as planned. If you don't, just shout 'Aaaaaauuuggghhh!' and fake a heart attack." That night Bob knocks at the girl's door. When she comes out he is awe-struck at how hot and sexy she is. He's about to speak when the girl suddenly grabs for her chest and lets out a loud ... "Aaaaaauuuggghhh!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Growing Vegetables in an Apartment By guest (Guest Post) Best Answer I have a nice yard but prefer to grow my vegetables on the deck since the deer can't get up there. You can grow snow peas in containers if you give them something to climb on and the leaf lettuces work well. These are spring veggies. When they're done, you can plant something else like green beans in the same containers. Tomatoes work well in pickle buckets as long as they have some support (circular cages will work). You will have to water the tomatoes often. Also, wash out your egg shells and sprinkle them on the soil. They give the tomatoes their needed calcium and help to prevent blossom end rot. You can even grow melons with the roots in containers and the fruit resting on the deck.

A hidden surprise.
A man spent several hours enduring long lines, surly clerks, and insane regulations at the L.A. Department of Motor Vehicles. On his way home, he stopped to pick up a gift for his son. He selected a baseball bat. "Cash or charge," the clerk asked. "Cash!" the man snapped, then apologizing for his rudeness, he explained, "I've just spent the entire afternoon at the Motor Vehicle office." "I understand," the clerk replied, and then asked, "Shall I gift wrap the bat, or ... are you going back there...?"
